speaker exposed. will dust pollution spoil it?
Not finding an answer in other threads, I'm asking here.
My JBL Oval C series speakers in rear parcel tray of my Palio Stile Sport 1.6 were creating rattling sound. To troubleshoot, I removed top lids; trying to identify culprit loose-fittings.
The noise was coming from loosely screwed speaker to tray + dangling scotch tape. It took me 3 hours, and 5 try-and-ride attempts to get to the root.
Problem is fixed. I'm now testing speakers with top cover not put-back. Speaker internals are exposed. I feel like sound and bass is 10% better.
Will I face future problems if I leave it this way?
Will ensure not to put items on speakers.
But I also drive with window open 20% of time. Will dust spoil my speakers?

Get an MDF tray for your rear speakers and get them installed properly by a qualified fella.
You're going to damage the speakers if a rear passenger places something on your speakers. Dust, however will remain an issue which will have to be remedied by periodic cleaning.

AMit, the grille on the speaker is not dust proof. It has large holes to allow the sound to escape.
It is not possible that the speakers sound better without the grille.
I am glad you found the cause of your rattling. I now suggest you replace your grilles, to protect your speakers from physical damage.
